STATEMENT: Gillum Supports Abolishment of ICE, Replacement with New Agency

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum released the following statement today:

“I support a comprehensive immigration overhaul that includes abolishment of ICE in its current form to be replaced with a more compassionate and focused agency that actually keeps us safer. Donald Trump has turned ICE into a police and child separation agency — not a border enforcement agency that treats people humanely and compassionately. A decision between security or compassionate immigration policy is a false choice; we can have them both, and I promise to fight for that as Governor.”
